Characteristics Of Common Spiders

The Arachnid class includes spiders, ticks, daddy longlegs, and scorpions. Spiders have just two body parts, an abdomen, and a cephalothorax, like all other arachnids. These two body parts connect at their waist by a pedicel, a narrow tube. The cephalothorax is hard and has the infamous eight legs of a spider, whereas the abdomen is soft and not segmented. Although some spiders have fewer or even no eyes, most have eight eyes, and all have relatively poor vision.

Spiders use a variety of tactics to catch prey, including many different types of organisms. They can mimic their prey to avoid detection, lasso it with sticky balls, trap it in webs of sticky material, or chase and tackle it. Most hunters primarily use vibrations to detect their prey, but active hunters have keen vision.

Spiders primarily consider the potential for reproduction and the accessibility of prey when deciding where to live. To assess whether there will be enough food and a suitable location to lay their eggs, they typically build a web to scout out potential nesting sites.

What It Means If You're Seeing Spiders In Your Home

In many cases, spiders indicate the presence of other pests in your home, and it's often pests you don't physically see.

Spiders prefer insects to human food. Therefore, if you notice that they are around more frequently than usual, it is likely that they are engaged in some internal pest management of your home. The good news is that many spiders are not dangerous to humans, and most do not bite. To avoid and quickly get rid of spiders, it is a good idea to be aware of the venomous spider species that are most prevalent in your area.

Factors That Attract Spiders Into Your Home

Different types of spiders favor various types of habitats. Some spiders seek refuge in basements, crawl spaces, and other moist areas of a house because moisture draws them.

Other spiders favor drier areas, like attics, high upper corners of rooms, and air vents. Most common house spiders live their entire lives indoors, concealed in dark places where they can access food and water.

They will be challenging to get rid of and keep returning unless you determine why spiders are coming into your home. To assist you, contact Solstys Environmental.
